What to Expect
- Ten two-hour units and is taught by a team of two trained “mentors” and a volunteer support person; all three persons are personally experienced at living well with mental illness.
- Mentors are trained in an intensive three-day training session and are supplied with teaching manuals.
- Participants come away from the course with a binder of hand-out materials, as well as many other tangible resources: an advance directive; a “relapse prevention plan” to help identify tell-tale feelings, thoughts, behavior, or events that may warn of impending relapse and to organize for intervention; mindfulness exercises to help focus and calm thinking; and survival skills for working with providers and the general public.
